Dr. Stephanie Rower received her Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree from Northwestern Health Science University in 2011. She was certified in acupuncture in 2012. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Physiology from the University of Minnesota. She loves being able to help people. Dr. Stephanie was always interested in natural health care while growing up and logically decided to go the chiropractic route for care and wanted to teach others about the benefits of chiropractic. She realized good health was possible to achieve through proper nutrition, spinal alignment, and physical fitness. While at Northwestern Health Science University, Dr. Rower started training for her first triathlon and saw how much regular chiropractic care helped her to achieve her goals. She believes that a healthy lifestyle includes four key components: well balanced nutrition, proper body mechanics, stretching, and exercise. Dr. Stephanie has found success in treating patients of all ages with common issues such as neck, back, shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle pain. She also enjoys working with pregnant women and babies as personal experience has taught her many things.
Dr. Rower has a passion for cooking, yoga, swimming, biking, and enjoying the outdoors with her family. She recently relocated to Davenport with her husband and young daughter to pursue a promotion in his career. Dr. Rower looks forward to continuing her chiropractic and acupuncture practice which will allow her to teach her passion in natural health care to her patients while allowing their body to function optimally by clearing out interference from spinal and extremity misalignments.
